Lively Magaluf Hotel
Ranked #25 of 28 Hotels in Magaluf
Reviewed 16 August 2009

I did not enjoy my stay at the don paco hotel in Magaluf/Palma Nova.
the maids did not SWEEP OR MOP the floor the ENTIRE WEEK!!! therefore when walking around bare-footed, then getting into bed- your bed got dirty ... and did they change the sheets... NO! ALL WEEK we had the same sheets on our beds, now normally u would not mind as this is how u live at home but when ur dragging in in all sorts from your feet then getting into bed and making it dirty-- quite CLEARLY dirty. you would expect some room service like changing the sheets and cleanihng the floor. one of the days we thought they had changed them... but no, they just made the bed and flipped the pillows over. I told my rep, who did not seem to care, he just brushed me off saying "he'll sort it" but never did.
also if you want your towels changed make sure you remember to leave them on the floor, as no matter how dirty they look next to the sink, they wont get changed unless they are on the floor.
Very noisy at night
im 20 and did not enjoy this 18-30's holiday

Arrived pretty late in afternoon was speedy check in and then off to the rooms, rooms were very clean and towels and toilet roll refreshed everyday! Was in the perfect location rite next to both beaches and the strip and not fogetting lots of lil restaurants to serve ya grub when you eventually roll out of bed! Security guards hated us however was still a laugh and we eventually got on with them after one decided to walk into our room and steal the boom box well confiscate it!! :) Had a great time everyone was so friendly! defo reccommend!!

When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by a nice Receptionist who gave us our keys and kept our passport for security reasons!!We found the rooms to be very basic - but what more would young people want!!The hotel was nice and clean...and bar staff were very helpful...hotel def not for people who are looking for a early night r quiet holiday - music playing from early morning till l8 at night. then people in rooms playing music....we were warned before we went that secuirity were nasty but we found them to be really nice!!(def have a laugh with other people on balcony..seeing people coming back frm night out and people just going out!hotel was brilliant location to all pubs and clubs-just down the steps and you were on the main strip.We ended up takin some nights out the reps (Club 18-30 - Jack, Elida & Co....)Had brill nights out with them!!!

Def recommed Magaluf if you are up for a laugh and partying every night....if you can stick every night out!!!LOL...people are really friendly and always up for a laugh.only thing to watch out for is the "Chicken Nugget" boys who are consantly trying 2 sell you stuff.....if you are staying at Don Paco...eat out at the restaurant acoss road - Robin Hood...excellent service and food!!!(we never made it up in time for breakfast in the hotel!!!)

Wish we were still there...def go back next year!!! Lynz,Lisa,Nat & Helen xxxx

brill hotel. definite one for groups of singles who want a laugh. people friendly, everyone knocks on your door and chats like youve known em for years! very noisy at night, music constantly playing. security can be strict appanrently, but we found them okay. they will tell you to keep the noise down if you shout out the balconys- but everyone does! everyone gets drunk everynight- go to boomerangs! the reps can be annoying- constantly trying to get you to buy trips out. but just tell them no. the beach is amazing. the strip is brill. seemed less busy than other years, due to weak euro but plenty of groups about to bring you laughs. not for families. if you like to meet new people and laugh till your sick- this is one for you!

Just back from a week in magaluf with my boyfriend. We arrived at Don paco at 7pm and were greated by polite receptionist who gave us our room key and took our passports til morning when we could ask for them back!

Room was quite basic but didnt complain at our cheap price we got it for and also some patio furniture in balcony. Overall was very clean and tidy. The hotel looked newly renovated and painted which was a bonus. Maids came in and changed bed and towels everyday except for a sunday. We went to the breakfast the last day and was dissappointed we never went the other days. Was a buffet style with sausage, bacon, toast, egg, tomato, meat, fruit and as much orange juice/water etc as you want! cannot complain at all with that!

great restuarants across the road esp the chinese with 4 course at 5.96 euro!! pool was small but beach 5mins away from hotel along with all the pubs and clubs you could ask for! Went start of june which was a bit quiet but can definately see it being mobbed july/aug.

Overall totally surprised by this hotel esp being 18-30! would go back again and dont listen to the moaners who rate it bad as all hotels can be a bit noisy that is out of there control!
